Lives and works Warrnambool, Victoria
Enamoured with the vibrant world that surrounds him, Matthew Clarke paints his subjects with an unquestionable spontaneity and conviction. His works tell of an effervescent ecology bursting at the seams with eccentric and dynamic characters. In his recent exhibition ‘Bird Watch’, Clarke tuned his perceptive focus upon the menagerie of avian nomads, which flock, flutter and flit within and amongst his family’s rambling acreage. Each dazzling visual record presents a unique persona hatched from Clarke’s undeniable joie de vivre.
